metal is a unique project funded by the EU’s European Social Fund, through the Welsh Government. Our aim is to address a skills shortage in materials and manufacturing through the provision of work based learning leading to a general up-skilling of the workforce which will ultimately help secure sustainability for Welsh industry.
